YouTubing around, I came across the idea of combining soft/flexy blade (for control, feel, dwell time, and spin) with hard rubbers (for more control) on both sides and applying pressure on opponents shot after shot after shot. I took this idea to the extreme: This is the flexiest/softest-rated frame that I could find on tabletennisdb.com, and I paired it with DHS Hurricane 8 Hard (~40 degrees) on both sides.
I love the blade. The rubber is quite good too, and using it, I have been able to make leaps-and-bounds progress with my technique. Months later, when it is time to replace it, I would like to try a harder rubber.

Hurricane 8 with 41 degree sponge is faster and have more catapult than H8 39/40 degree rubbers.Top sheet is the same like the softer versions. If you want something in between a tensor and a chinese rubber this might be the right choice. Composite blades are recommended. A minus is the weight.

The 40 degree Hurricane 8 is a heavy rubber, weighing 53 grams when cut to my 157 mm x 150 mm blade, which is two grams heavier than other heavyweights such as Tibhar’s Evolution MX-P or Xiom Omega V Asia. The DHS Hurricane 8 has the characteristic metallic Chinese rubber feel and sound to it. By itself, the rubber is rather slow. However, because I paired it with a very fast composite blade and since the rubber has minimal catapult, I was able to put a lot of physical effort into my shots, allowing me to generate a lot of pace on the ball, while maintaining excellent control.

I found the h8 medium was a bit slow so I get the hard and it seems a little faster but who knows. Had it for about 2 months and it still picks a ball up and holds it for an indefinite amount of time. So I rate it very tacky.
I put it on a viscaria. Very nice blade imo and with a tacky rubber very controlled shots. I used mxp on FH before on a all+ and it is very nice but not enough power. Still use mxp on viscaria as bh and the racket speed seems to just reduce dwell. Comparing these rubbers on FH I would say they play very similar. So how fast is h8 hard? A little slower than mxp. How spinny? A little more on the short, a little less on the long. How sensitive? H8 Less sensitive by a lot. Throw on mxp much higher so obv a good flick rubber if spin is your backhand.
Anyways, probably a good buy. I'm sticking with this setup as it feels balanced and I enjoy it more than my 13 other racket rubber combos
